Music made from human neuronal activity, taking advantage of the separation of excitatory and inhibitory neurons.  Inhibitory neurons are more rhythmic, and naturally form the bass/rhythmic sections.  Excitatory neurons fire more sparsely and were associated with melodic section.  The arrangement given here was done for wakefulness (Jazzy-wake), slow-wave sleep (Jazzy-sleep) and while dreaming (Jazzy-dream).  The data were from a previous publication (Peyrache et al., PNAS 2012) and the...

In this "REM" page, Spikiss proposes electronic music compositions based on the activity of neurons during REM (Rapid Eye Movement) sleep, where most dreams occur. The natural rhythmical activity of neurons is particularly emphasized in this song, as well as sounds that remind the strangeness of dreams...

In this "Sleep" page, the Spikiss duo proposes electronic music compositions based on the activity of neurons during slow-wave sleep. Here again, the natural rhythmical activity is exploited, with the use in addition of slow-wave types of sounds, driven by the activity of neurons.

Spikiss is a duo made of Alain Destexhe and Luc Foubert, who used experimental recordings of brain activity under the form of spikes, to compose electronic music. The recordings are from different sources, all published. The natural rhythmical activity of neurons is exploited, in particular for inhibitory neurons which are used for the bass and rhythmic sections. The more sparse activity of excitatory neurons is exploited to reveal their melodic capabilities, which are sometimes exacerbated by...

Computer-generated melodies from human neurons, based on electrical recordings of brain activity during wakefulness or sleep. A dataset of 92 neurons was used - these neurons were simultaneously recorded in the temporal cortex of human subjects (Peyrache et al., Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA, 2012). A given neuron was associated to a fixed tone, and every time this neuron fires, a note is emitted. The "melody" produced gives an idea about the distributed firing activity of those neurons....
